2023 Toyota Highlander Review: New Engine, New Life

Since last year, the Highlander comes with a choice of two all-wheel-drive powertrains. The standard Highlander features a 2.4L turbocharged four-cylinder engine mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and Toyota’s Dynamic Torque All-Wheel-Drive system. The Highlander Hybrid boasts Toyota’s renowned Hybrid Synergy Drive featuring a 2.5L four-cylinder engine, two electric motor-generators, and an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission.
